Eve Lom Cleanser - is it worth it?

i invested in a pot of Eve Lom cleanser/polish stuff which comes with the muslin cloth - can't say i am impressed and it all feels like a bit of a faff ... skin spotty and have been using it for 2 months now. Should i carry on or try something else ... was thinking of Dr Hausacka stuff (sp)

Dr.Haushka id fab,fab,fab!

I have some Eve Lom which I was given at Xmas-still haven't bothered using it....I would give Haushka a go-and it is cheaper.

I love mine

although it did make me spotty for a few weeks and I switched to dermalogica clay cleanser instead - also brilliant

back on the eve lom now and my skin looks pretty good

I love the smell of it

I found it all a bit of faff as well. I use Dermalogica now. The Daily Microfoliant is brilliant and no spots.

I love mine, my skin was noticeably better after 2 weeks using it - I would be ditching it if it was still not working after 2 months tbh, it sounds like it doesn't suit you.

Enid · 10/05/2007 13:33

yes I have heard that is good castles

ThatBeetroot · 10/05/2007 13:34

waste of money - buy the moisturiser but any old cleanser and toner will do - clarins is great

Taylormama · 10/05/2007 13:34

ooh yes Dermalogica - have heard great things about it. May have to treat myself to that and Dr Haushka ...

The look fantastic website (sorry can't do link as have baby on lap) have a dermalogica offer on at the moment, if anyone is interested. Can also recommend night/day bright boosters. I'm a terrible addict!

Ponds Cold Cream Cleanser has been voted as one of the best cleansers ever.

At £3.99 a pot its worth a try.

I have tried endless lotions and potions and find the more expensive they were the worse my skin got.

I now use the Simple range (about £4) and Ponds and have Botox and I look much better honest

I didn't think much of the eve lom stuff, but was introduced tto Darphin range few years back and am a fan now of the Intral raneg although I think all their products are good.
I noticed a difference in my skin, although am working myself up to some botox

I agree with Batters. I was a (very guilty - it is ridiculously expensive) devotee of Eve Lom until I went on an austerity drive and following advice on here changed to Liz Earle. I think it is better. Also, doesn't have the disconcerting vaseline-likeness of the Eve Lom. I also think the Liz Earle muslins do a better job. And the price difference is superb! If you live in London they have a shop now off Sloane Square.

thanks all - was bit peed off that £45 quid later my skin was still a bit rubbish. I am very thrifty and cannot bear waste so will finish the tub (but grudgingly!)

The Eve Lom stuff is only good for very dry skin - it's too emollient for me.

Have been using the Liz Earle stuff for 2 years and while it is pretty cheap - it's even cheaper on ebay (direct from the Liz Earle factory). Its a factory second - the only difference being it has a black S on the lable - I think I paid £9 ? for a 100 ml pump dispenser.

I really like the Eve Lom stuff - got myself a tester pot - but then I have VERY dry skin. It did occur to me though that I could probably get the same effect with something cheaper and one of DD's old burp cloths! I like the smell though and it makes my skin soft.
